'Home Sweet Home' Grand Reopening



Hi, everyone!  As many of you know, my mom and I own a little shop called 'Home Sweet Home.'
We're open on Fridays and Saturdays, and close for January and February to visit my sister and family in Arizona and just to take a winter break.
Last Saturday, March 1st, we had a Grand Reopening and were warmly welcomed back!
I thought I would share some pictures of the newly freshened up shop (even though a lot of these items have sold-we feel so blessed!)
Hope you don't mind lots of photos...enjoy!
















We have amazing candles made for us by a local girl...we can barely keep them in stock!!





























































Well, I hope that you enjoyed the little 'tour' of Home Sweet Home!
(I have a hard time not keeping all of these goodies for myself!)
Thanks so much for stopping by...have a wonderful rest of your weekend :)

  3. Your shop looks so pretty, I wish I were close enough to visit! It's my dream one day to have my own shop but for now I'll have to be contented with selling on Etsy.

  5. Good Morning my friend. Ohhhhhhhhh I loved the virtual shopping tour. Everything looks so wonderful. I see so many fabulous treasures I would buy if closer. I bet you had a line at the door for the customers that could not wait for you to reopen. The shop looks amazing.

  7. What a fun place to "visit" even through blogland. You do a beautiful job of display. Those candles look amazing, too. Wish I lived closer and could see it up close and personal. My daughter and I almost opened a shop a couple of years ago-but some things were going on that prevented it from happening...who knows----maybe ONE DAY. I bet you LOVE it! xo Diana

  15. Susan,
    Your re-opening must of rocked!!! All the vignettes were planned out beautifully. I am sure many things if not most sold. Inviting stores like yours and your Moms only happen because of talented display, you rock/excel at the art of vignettes.
    Do you plan to sell those wonderful candles in your etsy store? Eyes, fingers and toes crossed the answer is a yes.
    Happy Sunday,
    XO,
    Vera

  23. I wish I lived closer so I could shop there in person. I spied some cute things such as the tall finial painted white, petite wood cutting boards and old alarm clocks.

  24. Sure wish that I lived closer...so that I could come up your way to visit your shop. I know that we are in the same state. Thinking that my sister and I should go on a girl's road trip. I was thinking that it would be hard for me to not want to keep everything too. I see so many wonderful things that I really love.

  29. Gosh, I enjoyed this. Love to see how you arrange things. Your shop is very charming with lovely displays. You fired me up for doing this week's Spring displays in my shop. I POURED over what you and your partner mom did and just loved it. My kind of shop. Thank you.

  30. Fabulous! I just opened my little boutique this week! I've had an antiques booth for a couple of years but now I have my own little shop, and I do mean little! It's in an old dressing room at new antiques emporium in our town. I had a photographer come and take some pictures and hopefully I will get them uploaded and get my new blog for my shop going. Anyway, lots of inspiration here! Love how you used the candle flash card for the candle display!

  31. You and your Mom have a wonderful and very charming shop, Susan! I fell in love with several things right away and so I'm not amazed that a lot of items sold so fast.

  32. Susan,
    Such a charming shop y'all have. Love the frames with the old keys. I would love to feature "Home Sweet Home" at my new series SHOP TALK...e-mail if you are interested.

    Blessings,

  33. SO beautiful. I must find out where you are so if you are on my route for my Ohio sojourn sometime in the next couple of months i can stop by. You remind me that it is time to bring out the bunnies -- even though there is a good deal of snow on the ground, likely to be there a long while, at least I can pretend it is spring! Happy day!

  34. I would want to keep everything, too! Love those old clocks and the candles look amazing! I love finding a local person that makes things....always better! Enjoy your week my friend! Sweet hugs, Diane

  47. Congrats on your re-opening! I love your shop and you could of share more and more pictures. I would have a hard time getting rid of it. I want to keep everything! Your gateleg table reminds me of mine. I love that vintage side table. I actually have both pieces and could pull it together now! My hubs is so glad I don't live close cause I would spend a fortune.

  52. I am SO sad that I missed this! I have been SO busy this month. I have barely even slept, and now I am seriously pouting that I haven't been in. I see so many fun finds. I'll definitely be making an appearance this upcoming Saturday! I'm hoping some of the goodies I'm eye-balling haven't already been snapped up! Wishful thinking!!!

  53. So lovely! Wish I was nearer so I could come and shop, I could spend a boatload of time and money! ~Ann
